What an amazing and informative day we had touring Delft and Hague. We booked this tour while still on a cruise so we could explore more our last day. Stefka emailed promptly and explained and booked our tour without an problems. She was so informative on our ride out stopping at a Delft Pottery site, walking through Delft, stopping for lunch, driving us to the Hague and toured the main museum. By the end of the tour Stefka felt more like a family member than a travel guide. . .she was that good! We would high recommend this company and especially this guide.
Caspar is the best! We worked with our tour guide, via email, to customize our tour. Our first stop was Clara Maria Cheese and Clog Farm. We watched wooden clogs being made and had a demonstration of cheese making. Our next stop was the Delft pottery factory. This was one of our desired stops and we enjoyed seeing how the pottery is made and, of course, shopping in the factory shop! The World Famous Keukenhof Garden is a must see, and did not disappoint! I highly recommend this tour, since you can customize it to your individual desired attractions. Caspar was attentive, knowledgable, and very much fun to travel with!
